I have just returned from a trip to the shops in search of food for the weekend. My boyfriend and I are heading south to Florida (it’s next to Miami!) to stay in his parents’ beach shack. Normally I would take this opportunity to complain about land developers’ decisions to name housing estates after American states/cities but I am currently stuck on another issue – the price of avocados.


They’re green. They’re high in delicious, healthy fats.  They also cost $3.60 each, which is about 90¢ per quarter. And it is highly likely that I will cut into it and discover that 50 old ladies have squeezed and hence bruised my avocado in the search for the perfect ripeness. It just doesn’t seem right to me.

I have no solution for this avocado conundrum and this is merely a gripe. I do plan on one day owning an avocado tree so that I can produce my own fruit. Except that seems hard and I don’t know anything about gardening so I will continue to fork out money to Mr Coles and Mr Woolworths until I do.
